Update

Can't believe it was Saturday that I last posted. It just goes to show what a relaxing weekend I've had. I stuck around the lodge most of the time getting on with some work in a nice relaxing environment.

Met with one of my PhD supervisors yesterday who came over to present to various people in government here on his findings from the latest data gathered on the subsidy programme that I am doing my research on. It was great to catch up - we had a good chat over lunch about all sorts, including what I've found out so far through my interviews. There's a growing interest in the programme with quite a few new papers coming out trying to assess its impact. It's certainly a very interesting topic to be engaged with.

Other than that, I paid a visit to immigration today to extend my visa for the duration of my stay. It was quite an experience to say the least. The queues were quite unbelievable but thankfully I managed to get through fairly easily and pass by most queues. There's lots more I could say on that but I think I'll leave it there for now :)

Also just been moved to another room while they do some plumbing in the other building I was in, so I'm now in a particularly nice suite for tonight at least and maybe tomorrow, though I think we might be heading south tomorrow afternoon.
